Climb the tree to be taller than the tree

Easily missed at first glance, the photograph shows that the artist has free-climbed to the top of a large conifer tree, positioning himself above the topmost branches.

A 16mm film loop of the same title – transferred from the original Super 8 footage – provides a firsthand, forearm view of the climb.

Photographic assistance by Odette England.
